The world of music is continuously changing. From the latest pop music down to the current R&B hit, the word change is the only thing that remains constant in the music industry. However, particular songs make it to the definitive list. These kinds of songs become phenomenal because of how they communicate to their listeners, making them the timeless ones. Decent Da Don is one of the music artists who aim to be exemplary.
Decent Da Don is also known as Guadalupe Arias in real life. He is 25 years old and also famously known as “Da Don.” Being a Mexican/American music artist, he is fluent in Spanish and English. However, when he was younger, he struggled to learn and speak the English language. Decent Da Don was born in San Fernando Valley and raised in Canoga Park, California.
His love for music started when he admired songwriters and other artists in the music industry. Some of these artists include Big L, Biggie Smalls, Tupac, Snoop Dogg, and Eminem. He used to get this influence from everywhere across the Dirty South, North, East, and West Coast. He was more interested in what the songs talked about, and that sparked his love for poetry. It was poetry that motivated him to become a better writer himself.
When Decent Da Don noticed himself getting more interested in writing, he pursued learning the English language better. This motivation has helped him improve in the way he delivers his words and composes his paragraphs. Da Don even reached a point where he used to write words from the English dictionary to add another to his vocabulary. Decent Da Don eventually fell in love with the art of expression, and soon enough, he found himself wrapped around it. He also started to write melodies in his head, which motivated him to pursue music even more.
A decade has passed, Decent Da Don still finds himself pursuing his passion and dreams. His music is a mixture of his thoughts, ghetto life, and struggles. When people mix their own experiences with their own formulated thoughts, the works of music become exemplary. Decent Da Don can attest to that because his experience is very similar. In a separate interview, he stated, “A song is a conversation you could have with the whole world without being around.” This statement hit many listeners on many levels and has gained the hearts of most.
Decent Da Don’s music is his greatest possession. He pours his heart and soul into every line he writes. He wants his music to influence people and make them feel empowered. Decent Da Don aims to change the way music is perceived. Since he is an innovator and a collector of valuable lessons and actions through words and melody, he wants to showcase these talents to give aspirant musicians the courage and inspiration they are looking for.
The music he creates does not choose its listeners. Instead, it wants to resonate with every ethnicity, to everyone with a pair of listening ears. He wants to unite people through his music with original words and conscious writing.
Five years from now, he envisions himself on big shows and meeting A-list actors, artists, and other influential people. He also hopes to open his own restaurant, clothing line, and studios. Ultimately, Decent Da Don wants people to see what music can do for them. His years of experience will tell just how exceptional his music is.
